Huntington’s disease is a rare degenerative genetic condition. Those with the condition experience a breakdown in brain nerve cells, leading to a gradual loss of cognitive and motor function. Because this condition is genetic, people are more likely to develop it if one or both of their parents have the carrier gene. This condition cannot be cured and does eventually lead to death. It can sometimes start before age 20, known as “Juvenile Huntington’s disease”. 


Below are several articles about Huntington’s disease and its symptoms. You may also learn how Huntington’s disease may impact people with early-onset patterns and how to find ways to reduce the severity of early symptoms. You’re not alone, and support is available.
